Can You Curl Your Lashes After a Lash Lift

The straightforward answer is that it's not recommended to use a lash curler over a lash lift.

Using a mechanical or heated eyelash curler could destroy the lift's results and risk damaging your lashes especially within 24 hours post-lifting period.

What Happens if You Use Lash Curler on Lifted Lashes

  • Breakage and Loss: Curling can cause lashes to break or fall out, significantly when they're weakened post-lift.
  • Heat Damage: Heated curlers can expose lashes to harmful heat.
  • Tugging and Pulling: Mechanical curlers may tug at lashes, risking pulling them out.
  • Infection Risk: Dirty curlers can introduce bacteria, leading to eye infections and lash loss.
  • Wear and Tear: Using a worn-out curler increases the risk of lash damage.
  • Poor Technique: Incorrect curling technique can harm your lashes more than help.

Safe Alternatives to Lash Curlers

  • Lash Serums: These nourishing treatments enhance the overall health, length, and thickness of your lashes. Our collection at Luxe Cosmetics offers high-quality eyelash growth serums that support lash strength and vitality.
  • Lash Mascaras: Light mascaras are a perfect touch-up for keeping your lashes looking their best between lift treatments. Our lash conditioning mascaras add volume and definition without weighing your lashes down. 
  • For a DIY touch-up: Use a small brush, like a clean mascara spoolie, for a gentle lash curl. Warm the brush in hot water, dry it thoroughly, and gently brush and press up from the base of your lashes to create a subtle curl. This method is a safe, effective way to achieve a bit more lift without compromising the integrity of your lash lift.

When You Can Start Using Lash Curler After Lash Lift

Wait for eight weeks after your lash lift before using a lash curler. This allows time for new lash growth, ensuring your lashes are healthy and strong enough for curling.

Final Thoughts

To conclude curling lashes after a lash lift is better to avoid to protect your lash health. Instead consider Luxe Cosmetics’ Nourishing Mascara for safe, beautiful lash enhancement without the risks.
